Project Title: Smallpox Outbreak



The purpose of our project is to determine how a smallpox outbreak effects the population of a large U.S. city. Due to recent terrorist attacks on the U.S., this project deals with a relevent issue that may provide needed answers. We will develop a simulation base on SIR models. We will then write a C++ program to run our simulation. We will consider several variables such as the size of the city and the infectional death rate of smallpox. We will then use a math formula to determine how many people will be infected and how many of those people will die. We expect to provide an accurate model for a smallpox outbreak in a large U.S. city.
